Abstract: This article is concerned with the reflection and transmission of fluid-structure cou- pled waves at the junction between two flexible waveguides of different heights. Unlike previous studies, in which the waveguides are joined at the height discontinuity by a rigid or soft strip, here the height discontinuity is bridged by a membrane. The aims are first to develop a solution method that enables a wide range of conditions to be applied at the edges of the bridging membrane, and then to ascertain the effect that these have on the reflected and transmitted fields. Numerical results are presented which confirm that that the conditions applied at the edges of the bridging membrane do have a significant effect on the reflected and transmitted components of power.
